Ahh I finally have one. Was roaming around a thrift shop last weekend, they had a "ten cent" section, I guess for things that had "been around awhile" and were taking up space in the shop... well, one of the pink-tagged ten cent items was a really well-constructed garment bag. Ten cents! Those things are at least fifty bucks to buy new!

Also got some small ovenproof casserole dishes (i.e. for single-serving lasagne) and a cherry pitter and a *good* lemon zester... it was a really productive trip, and I got change back from a five... :)

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

a couple of weeks ago, I was in my local Goodwill looking for books. didn't find any. However, I did find two beautiful hand blown martini glasses. These were more like pieces of art glass than a typical martini glass. I checked the bottom and they were etched with the artist's name. Each glass was $2.99. I bought them and when I got home, I searched on the artist.

I found the martini glasses ! And yes, they were designed by a glass blower in Virginia. Turns out, brand new, each of those glasse is $82.50 EACH. The ones I bought were made in 2008 and are in mint condition.

SCORE !

Recently picked up a pair of Vigoss Studio jean shorts at a Goodwill for $7. When I was trying them on I reached in the pocket and found a crumpled up wad of bills totaling $19. I bought them and then had money left over. Ha Ha!

Also got on craigslist a free fire pit. It was nasty! I restored it and it looks and works awesome! Nice find for free!

I also picked up on craigslist free a fake Christmas tree! We always cut our own, but this year going with fake. Tired of wasting a tree and the bugs and spiders and tramping through mud and rain to get one. The fake one we got is awesome. It was used in a studio for picture backdrop. It was a high-end tree! I really love the free section on craigslist. I am always finding great stuff on there.

Thanks to all those that give stuff away free! One man's trash is another man's treasure!

Cheers,

i just wore one of them today. a lovely skirt that is so different, and pretty. so many compliments... and though it seems too dressy to wear to something not "special" i wore it to the opera rehearsal, then we went for a hot dog and to the movies. people were apparently looking at us funny, according to my boyfriend...

people can be so funny sometimes.

Day before yesterday somebody left at least a dozen ladies' blouses and men's casual shirts STILL WITH TAGS on the free bench! Unfortunately nothing my size. They were all different brands; I think someone must be getting job lots from a liquidator for a used clothing store somewhere, and bringing the remnants down here for some reason.

Of course, somebody also brought two boxes of dirty junk that should have gone in the trash-- empty cans, crusty paintbrushes, old half-used spiral notebooks, and what looks like cow vertebrae. Ick. I'm the nearest neighbor, so if it's still there tomorrow I guess I'd better pitch it.

I'm always shopping the local Good Will on senior discount day - I look for throw pillows to recover. Whoever does the pricing prices all pillows $5. Some are throwaways, but I have a collection of very expensive ones (I'm talking $80 in dept. stores) that look brand new and are too good to recover!

The area Salvation Army stores have half price on clothing every Wednesday. My weight has fluctuated through several sizes and that's where I get almost all my clothes. Best find was one of my favorite dresses for $1; one of my goals is to be able to wear it next Christmas.

Recently I found a genuine Burberry wool suit in perfect condition for about $10; a new one now would be somewhere around $2000. My SO wasn't interested so someone else got a great find.

My favorite find from a thrift store was a Studebaker Kleenex box still in the original box with the hardware in the baggie still manufacture grade.. It had a serial number on it and everything in it.. I thought it was cool, didn't know what it even was.. paid .50 cents for it.

After when I got it home and did research on it I turned around and stuck it on Ebay..

It sold over $500.00 LOL

A great profit but I don't think I will ever get that lucky again lolol

Anarie that is cool. I often put nice things out by the mail boxes with free signs on them and they are gone the next time I go outside. The mail boxes are by my driveway so I am not or shoudn't be annoying neighbors since it is by my property. I have noticed another neighbor placed a few things there once too with a free sign.

I don't even have to go to a thrift store! The little town where I'm living has a "free bench" in front of the old general store, where people do sort of a silent swap meet. Yesterday I got a pair of Doc Marten sandals that look like they've never been worn, a Levi jean jacket, and two pounds each of navy beans and pinto beans. The sandals alone would have been at least $100, and I got them free.

I do contribute, though. This free bench is where I took most of my bigger clothes when I lost my weight, and whenever anybody in my family has something extra- like the printer/copier/fax machine that my mom somehow got free with rebates before finding it didn't fit in her computer workstation-- I take it there or to the community center. When I used to come here once a year to visit, about half my truck was packed with donations.

A ladies fitted blazer by Eddie Bauer for $4, it still had the original tags on it and looked brand new, and fit me perfectly.

I got a flute for my sister. Hers was stolen. It was only twenty bucks and made a great Christmas gift.

I am always worth my best. My best is good enough for anyone.

we are going on a beach vacation, and I wanted to find a beach blanket for all of us to sit on and could pack easily in a suitcase...instead I found the softest cotton shower curtain, in excellent shape! Not exactly what I wanted, but it will work great! $3.00 well spent! I always find old CD's and great books too. Workout DVD's are also a great find to spice up my workouts!

I love to read and I especially enjoy anything by Sidney Sheldon. I find books at thrift stores anywhere from 50 cents to 3 dollars. Great buys!! I love a bargain.

I found a brand new in box Garmin 405 running watch with GPS and heart rate monitor for $60 (retail $170). I have been using it for 3 years now and it's still awesome.

My last two finds are a brand new SRT Viper car motorized car my grandson can drive, it sells sells for $159.99 it is in box, but box has some damage which I would not need anyways. I paid 90.00 at Goodwill and saved 70 bucks. We tried it l all out and everything works, there is zero damage. I cannot wait to put some cool Batman stickers on it for my grandson. He will get this for either his birthday or Christmas this December.

I bought a brand new in box the cool touch griddle that is totally immersible, cooking space seems larger then average, and it has a tray that you can put bacon or what have you in to keep warm under the grill separate from the drip tray. I paid 20.00 and price ranges from $39.99. to $49.99 elsewhere, this is one of my married daughters Christmas presents.
